Lightbulb Pinball Pickles' color, what oh what could it be?

Hi everyone, so like most here I'm wondering about Pinball's color. He's only 8 weeks, so I am aware that he still needs to lose his quills but I am curious nevertheless. The breeder told us he was a 'reverse pinto' but from what I've been seeing it seems as if he's a high pinto or overo? Not 100% sure so I'd love your expertise

1 - overall pellage (colour)---------->> He's about 50/50 black-white but the white seems to be a bit more dominant. White quills are mostly on his sides and butt. He has mixed quills on the top of his body and head.
2 - quill banding ----------> The colored quills on top are (from bottom to top): white -> cream -> black -> cream -> white
3 - Skin colour (over the shoulder area) ---------> Rosy color. Not a soft pink, but more of a deeper pink
4 - eye colour ------------> black but once you look closer, there's blue behind the black
5 - nose colour -----------> charcoal
6 - mask ----------> grayish color
7 - mottling on the legs and underbelly ---------> Belly is white (no color) and legs are a dark rosy color
8 - age ----------> 8 weeks

I hope the description and pictures help. Thank You for your time

I'm going to guess Algerian Chocolate Pinto He might also possibly a snowflake depending on how many white quills he has in the area where his skin is brown (under the brown quills).

Definitely not a reverse pinto. He looks like a grey pinto. He's a cutie though.
